New Purchase - 1875 "Philadelphia" quarter (with something below the eagle)

Just received this Seated Quarter that I won on Ebay. I definitely got a bargain on it, but I couldn't quite get the steal - it jumped from $9 to $51 in the last second. It was listed as an 1875 Philadelphia.

Hmm... I think I see something below the eagle. Actually two things below the eagle. Yeah I guess this is my first real scarce CC coin, all the others are the "common three" CC Seated dimes and a 76-CC quarter. Mintage is 140k on this one, and there certainly aren't many left. Looks like examples in this grade have previously sold for $150-200 or so, so this one is definitely a win!
